Connectors and multiple lighting for your layout

Just a quickie today – but fortunately it’s from Hall of Fame member, Dangerous Dave:

“Hi Al

Well I made it in to the loft after a few weeks away from it all, busy during the summer in the garden and just got back off holiday… so decided to do a railway video at last , and show on here a couple of items that could be useful to modellers…

The connectors should prove very useful for electrics on multiple lighting.



Latest ebay cheat sheet is here.

I still love watching Dave’s layout when it’s running. He’s getting pretty good with that camera now.

That’s all this time, folks. Please do keep ’em coming. Or if you’re still waiting in the wings, get started with the Beginners Guide.

    Thanx Dave. Was wondering where you had wandered off to. As per usual, this “episode ” was informative and entertaining. Those connectors would help eliminate rats nests in the wiring. And thank you Al for relaying Dave’s good work!

    Thanks Dave – I’d also wondered where you’d wandered off to. Great to have you back and, as always, a helpful and entertaining video. Just ordered 4 of those terminal blocks for lighting that you demonstrated! Thanks for the tip. Glyn

    Hi Al
    Thanks for posting Davies video, I wish I had the knack of editing ect….
    Dave thanks for the information and the time you spend helping others with the same interests.
    I have just placed an order for 4 of the connectors as I’m just about to start a fresh oo layout and getting the lighting is a big part of realistic modelling.
    The p&p discount was taken off at the checkout it only cost £2.70 for the 4 of them to get delivered.
    I’ve tried to find a supplier closer to home but I drew a blank, it’s a good idea and it saves the use of the dreaded connecter blocks that always seem to let me down.
    Thanks again.
